A little (but important) smoke alarm legislation update

A little (but important) smoke alarm legislation update - blog post image

As some of you may (or may not) know, new legislation commenced from 1 January 2017 in relation to smoke alarms and their installation over the next 10 years. The legislation, known as the Fire and Emergency Services (Domestic Smoke Alarms) Amendment Act 2016 (Qld), has initiated a 10-year ‘phased rollout’ of components in three fixed terms. These periods, commencing on 1 January 2017, 1 January 2022 and 1 January 2027, all have their own legislative requirements. But, what does it all really mean currently for a homeowner, a tenant, a landlord, a renovator or someone selling their home?

  • Excellent service at a fair price. Ryan installed new fixed smoke detectors as well as undertaking some repairs and other minor installation work. He returned twice after hours to restore lights to childrens bedrooms we were having wardrobes installed in, all for a fixed price. Highly recommended.

  • Don't normally leave reviews but Ryan has been excellent. Bought a new house and made some changes. New fans, new circuits, upgraded fuse box new lights, data cabling. Every job great workmanship. Ryan very friendly and accommodating and his quotes/prices are super competitive. Have recommended him to several friends already.

  • We had a very small job that needed attending to. The electrician arrived on time and was very courteous and helpful. He was not pushy (ie: did not try to ‘upsell’ us into services that were not necessary), but alerted us to potential issues to consider in the future. Happy to recommend and try again in the future.

  • Ryan quoted us to complete a number of small jobs at home. He was prompt both for the quote and on the day of the work, polite and efficient and came back to immediately to install a dimmer on one of the new lights after we reviewed it. We were very happy with his work, his attitude and his pricing. We would recommend him.

  • I found Hanson Electrical to be friendly, courteous and on-point with their work. If you want the job done right the first time, then give them a call. “Hanson is just so friendly, so professional and just so helpful. Nothing is too hard, everything has just been awesome!”.

  • Ryan is my "go to sparky". He responds quickly to my requests and his professionalism and workmanship continues to be of the highest quality. I first engaged Ryan last year for a major renovation and I have requested his services a few times since. He is always ready to help find solutions and provide advice. I again, highly recommend Hanson Electrical.

  • I have engaged Hanson Electrical to undertake all electrical works for a major house renovation. Ryan is a professional. He provides ideas to improve the outcome and when needed, solutions to problems. He is quite flexible in his approach, attentive to issues and concerns and easy to talk to and work things through. His workmanship is high quality and the price reasonable. I do recommend Hanson Electrical Services for any electrical services.

  • Most surprised to find a tradesman that actually turns up, and spot on time...… Ryan was fast and efficient and came prepared for any issues the job required. Excellent service at a fair price and worthy of the 5 star rating....Thank you Ryan

  • I found Ryan very reasonably priced and very professional. Ryan and a business partner installed down lights in our whole house. He took the time to ensure we knew what we were getting and explained in detail the type of lights that are available. When installation time came they took the time to make sure we were happy with the location of the lights for the best outcome. After installation they cleaned up after themselves very well and removed all of our previous lights off site. All in all the job was done very professionally and quickly at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.
